TYPES OF CCTV SYSTEMS
Analogue Systems - The traditional CCTV system which can have multiple cameras feeding into fixed recording equipment. They're able to record continuous video or still images, save them to an on-site DVR (digital video recorder), and the DVR can also be linked to the internet for monitoring remotely via PC or smartphone. The recorded images can be copied to a CD/DVD or USB flash drive for inspection and identification of suspects by the police in any criminal investigation. Even though many DVR setups have an internet connection as standard, they are actually designed to perform as standalone systems.
Internet Protocol (IP) Systems - Cameras can be connected with a local intranet, a wide area network or via the internet to provide monitoring and recording. The DVR in an IP system has got a secure gateway which the cameras can link into wirelessly, whilst additionally having the capability to connect via an internet router for viewing and monitoring purposes. Being able to send a live stream to your smart phone is a major advantage of IP cameras, and the images and video can also be stored onto your device for extra security. But, the encryption and security features have to be configured properly to prevent any unwanted viewing of your cameras and their recordings.
Cloud Systems - Cameras make use of an internet connection via an encrypted server to store and save all images and video footage in what is known as the "cloud".

The images from an infrared may be of a slightly diminished resolution than that of full daylight and they'll also always be in black and white thanks to the peculiarities of low light recording. If there is a sizable resolution difference, it might also be possible to put in extra security lighting with specialist lamps that will produce something close to natural light. These offer you the best chance of capturing colours in artificial light conditions, and can be set to only turn on if movement is detected by the camera.
